Businesses are encouraged to support The Lighthouse, Children and Families in its mission to help seriously ill children and their families. Whether it’s in the form of major gifts, sponsorships, employee donations or matching donations, businesses can foster the establishment of best practices in pediatric palliative care through a number of corporate actions. These initiatives also help develop related research and teaching projects.

A tax receipt can be issued for product donations only, upon presentation of proof of the market value of the donation, except for gift certificates offered by the merchant. For donations of services, please contact Mélanie Séguin at 514 787-5092 or mseguin@phare-lighthouse.com.

Matching donations

Show your company’s social commitment and promote employee satisfaction by offering to match their donations.

Businesses can double the amount of their employees’ donations, making it even more impactful! We can help you create a matching donation program that provides double the support to seriously ill children and their families.

Payroll deduction donations

Are your employees interested in supporting the well-being of The Lighthouse’s palliative care children and their families? Invite them to join your company’s payroll deduction program to support families affected by the illness or death of their child.

Cause-related marketing and product donations

A cause-related marketing initiative has a positive impact on your corporate image while raising funds to help The Lighthouse, Children and Families.

Support can come in many forms and include a combination of various contributions:

  • Donation related to the sale of a product
  • Corporate monetary donation related to the initiative
  • Access to The Lighthouse community (solicitation or promotion)
